PLEASE consider becoming a SPONSOR for one of our SENIOR Greek shelter dogs on the island of Syros. YOU can make their lives a little healthier & happier!

Your monthly sponsorship will help provide the dog with nutritious food, veterinary care if needed, any additional supplements they may require & preventative medications. All these dogs are in their senior years.

Sponsorship costs just USD$12 (10€) per month (recurring donation)

The cycladic island of Syros, is home to the Syros Stray Animal Shelter which currently accommodates 30 stray & abandoned dogs.

It is common for previous hunting dogs to be left in the mountains to die in Greece and many of the residents came to the shelter this way. Others were found as puppies on the streets sick, starving or wounded. The shelter is run by a few dedicated volunteers & constantly struggles financially & finding volunteers to help. It is our mission to help this shelter find sponsors for some of their beautiful dogs, many of whom have been at the shelter up to 12 years. Please consider sponsoring a Syros dog and show them that somebody really does care. Thank you.

Meet some of the beautiful dogs at the Syros Shelter looking for sponsors!

BREE…

Bree… is a very friendly senior dog who loves both people & animals. She is Quiet, calm, listens to commands & adores hugs! 

She is now 9 years old and has been at the shelter (together with her sister “Chris” ) for 8 long years.

Bree is on thyroid medication and recently has been unwell. A liver problem is suspected so a biopsy has been taken & results await.  Bree’s would love some sponsors so that she’s able to receive supplements to keep her healthy and to pay for her regular thyroid tablets.

We all hope Bree’s condition will not get any worse. More than anything we’d love Bree a family of her own, but at her age and with her health issues it’s not too likely. She’d love your ongoing support, so please consider sponsoring this lovely old lady. .



 

MARIO…   

Mario… is the Syros Stray Animal Shelter since he was 30 days old.

Mario was brought to the shelter with her brother, Christos, when they were only 30 days old and were found abandoned. 

She is a very smart,  full of energy and strength. She is quieter than her brother, very affectionate and listens to commands once you gain her trust. Like Christos, she does not have the best relationship with other adult dogs, but they love children.

Mario has diabetes. The volunteers at the shelter are trying to offer the best possible means for her, but she needs special food to lose weight. We are looking for 3 sponsors to cover Mario’s needs and we are always looking to find her the forever home she deserves!

CHRIS…

Chris… is a very affectionate & calm dog. 

She is now 9 years old and has been at the shelter (together with her sister “Bree” ) for 8 long years.

Her eyes are melancholic and it is clear that she did not have good experiences before the shelter found her. Chris is very friendly with both people and other dogs, she is perfect to be in a home!

More than anything we’d love Chris to have a family of her own, but at her age it’s not too likely. She’d love your ongoing support, so please consider sponsoring this lovely old lady. .




XIANOULA…

Xianoula… likes to be the pack leader!

She is a beautiful, striking girl who is very bonded with her sister Jenny.

She has been at the shelter for 10 long years, she is now 11 years old. Xionoula loves adults & children. She is selective with which dogs she shares her company but we would love to see her retire into a loving home where she can enjoy the comforts of home for the first time in her life & be loved by someone special. 

As she is now in her senior years, she’s looking for sponsors to provide her with the support she needs as she grows older.
